Rodgers returns to Packers practice after injuring knee

The game featured Laquon Treadwell's first National Football League touchdown catch, but also multiple drops.

In a game the Packers will feel like they should have held on to win, they ended up relieved just to get a tie following Daniel Carson's missed 35-yard field goal attempt. The refs in Sunday's game, unfortunately for the Packers, were even more clueless than normal.

This week, Matthews was once again called for the same penalty and it negated an interception that likely would've given the Packers a win. "A tie is just weird", Crosby said.

"I am exhausted and I don't know what to feel after a tie...it's a unique place to be and I'm proud of the way the whole team [.] stayed in it and fought".

In similar fashion, Vikings linebacker was called for a roughing the passer penalty on Rodgers on the Packers' final drive to end the first half.

"It was basically I was trying to get to the pylon, and it was Kirk's idea to just throw it to the pylon", Thielen said.

Through two weeks, Thielen has himself two 100-yard games. "I don't' know. I'm trying to bite my tongue but I obviously don't agree with it".

"I'm pretty sore right now, sore in some other spots too so that's taken away some of the knee pain", Rodgers said.

"I didn't mean to rough (Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers) up or anything", Kendricks said. To call it at that point in the game is unbelievable. But frustrating to allow a call - when I felt like I did the right thing - it influenced the game. I don't know what else to do. Williams and Montgomery combined to run 21 times for 90 yards and they should have gotten more carries down the stretch.

Referee Tony Corrente told ESPN that Mathews was flagged for driving Cousins into the ground, and that his use of his body weight was not considered. It's a problem that no one can watch a replay of a catch and figure out if the play will be ruled complete or incomplete.

And the quarterback gave an update on his injury after battling through a week of treatment to take the field in the first home game of the season. "I thought he made some outstanding throws, made good decisions".

In 2013, a tie helped the Packers make the playoffs.
